What’s the final word on the injured Golden State Warriors star?
| Sport Today Headlines | News Today
There is a lot of hype surrounding the Golden State Warriors as they prepare for the start of the 2021-22 NBA season. Fans are delighted to see what this team can do after showing something of value over the past year. After adding several veterans to a roster full of young talent, the Warriors could have an intriguing mix of players to make some noise in the Western Conference this year.
Although the buzz is growing around the Golden State team that will be on the court to start the regular season, there is one player that everyone will be monitoring throughout the season. It’s been almost two years since we saw Klay Thompson on the NBA court. After initially suffering a torn ACL in the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors, Thompson would suffer another injury this offseason, this time a torn right Achilles tendon. It’s been a rough road back for Klay Thompson, and there’s no question the Warriors will want to be as careful as possible to get teammate “Splash Brother” back on the court.
What’s the latest from Klay Thompson?
There has been a lot of disorientation when it comes to specific dates for Klay Thompson’s comeback. It seems that every time the question is asked, a different kind of answer comes up. In August, ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne reported that the Warriors were targeting a Christmas Day game against the Phoenix Suns as a possible Thompson comeback. Warriors general manager Bob Myers was recently asked about an update and stated that the team is hopeful the five-time All-Star can return around January.
The clear message to draw from all of this is patience. The Warriors understand how important Thompson’s return is to this organization. After sustaining serious lower-body injuries in back-to-back years, Golden State realizes they can’t afford to rush Thompson as another injury could seriously ruin the team’s future. With players like Stephen Curry and Draymond Green leading the charge, the Warriors will remain dangerous opponents every night.
This team realizes that if they can emphasize patience and get Klay Thompson back to his old self, they can compete with any team in the NBA. The combination of Curry and Thompson gave the Warriors a huge advantage every night as they were the most dangerous backcourt in the entire NBA. With a team like Golden State, who can take control of a game with their outside shots, Thompson would give them a huge increase in firepower once he returns.
For basketball fans around the world, we will all continue to wait patiently to see Klay fire him up from the outside on the NBA court again.
